The Project

All of the money raised will go directly to funding a new information kiosk and point of interest signage at key parts of the conservancy.  This signage will enhance the community's experience at this site which is free year round and open to the public. 

The Site

This beautiful 60 acre site is teeming with birds, turtles, insects of all kinds and is the primary teaching space for thousands of school age children in the area who either learn about seasonal changes or ecology on-site and use a microscope lab to examine the organisms living in the pond.

Programs

Many of the community programs offered on weekends are free or charge a nominal fee and feature such topics as Nature CSI, seasonal walks, educational walks featuring such topics as spirals in nature  or more fantastical child-oriented programs such as our popular fairy house walk.   

Your donation will help fund a vital community resource that provides 180 school trips a year and the opportunity for more than 6,000 people each year to learn about and connect with the natural world. 

 We very much appreciate your generosity and support.
